Cylindrical grinding is a manufacturing and finishing process that rotates an object and a grinding wheel simultaneously but in opposite directions and at different speeds. The process can be internal or external. Also, depending on the desired outcome, the cylindrical grinding services can include plunge or traverse grinding methods.
Electro-Coatings is an industry leader with over 70 years of experience. Our Landis, Mesta, and Norton grinding machines allow us to say "yes" to jobs other commercial facilities can't handle. Our team and machinery can take jobs up to 60 inches in diameter by 21-foot parts with a 20-ton lifting capacity.
4 Advantages of Precision Cylindrical Grinding
Precision cylindrical grinding is ideal for creating high-quality parts and finishes. Our team includes professionals with journeyman-level experience and beyond. We offer a two- to three-day turnaround on most jobs and an expedited service if necessary. Our grinding services come with several advantages.
Our grinding services can provide a precision and tolerance of 0.0002 to 0.0003 inches. With our machinery and team, we can ensure dimensional accuracy in the radial direction, smoothing out ridges and high points while correcting for out-of-roundness errors.
Our cylindrical grinding services are also incredibly versatile; we can work with custom shapes, varying profiles, and finishes. We can grind all materials including metals, plastics, carbides, ceramics, etc. Our stock-engineered grinding wheels (aluminum oxide, silicon carbide, diamond, and more) enable us to deliver a precision finish.
Cylindrical grinding can also provide high-quality finishes, correcting surface imperfections and improving various surfaces. The surface's quality depends on the grinding wheel's selection and dressing. Our team can achieve an 8 to 12 RA finish with our current machines, and with additional polishing, we can achieve a 1 to 2 RA finish.
Our cylindrical grinding service is cost-effective, primarily when used for high-volume orders. Our tools and talent allow us to produce quality results with timely turnarounds, which saves money. Affordability and skill are two of the reasons we are a leader in the market for the steel, paper, roofing, roller reconditioning, and National Defense industries.
